MUGA ARO 2000 | BODEGAS MUGA | RIOJA | 93RP

"The first vintage, the 2000 Aro is beginning to become approachable. Concentrated, dense, and just starting to develop some elegance, it should hit its peak by 2015 and drink well for another 15 years thereafter. Drink: 2015-2030."

93 Points | Jay Miller | Robert Parker, Wine Advocate | Issue #189 | 29 June 2010

"The 2000 Aro, an unfiltered blend of 70% Tempranillo and 30% Graciano produced from 60 year old vines and aged 18 months in 100% new French oak, is a modern styled effort. An inky/purple color is followed by a superb bouquet of lead pencil shavings, black currant liqueur, cherries, new saddle leather, and earthy/soil undertones. It possesses super richness, a beautiful, full-bodied, velvety mouthfeel, admirable purity, and a long, concentrated finish with the tannin, acidity, and wood all smoothly integrated. Drink it over the next 12-15+ years."
